I am thrilled to be a part of the Home for the holidays tour!
For the past three years I have enjoyed a tree in our Kitchen.
I am blessed to have the room in our kitchen for a decent size tree.
A few years ago I used a trunk as a tree skirt,last year I used a galvanized bucket for a tree skirt.
This year I decided to use two drawers from my old dresser that is not being used.
I just added a little shawl to cover up the stand.
This is my Shabby Chic tree,using torn pieces from a Rachel Ashwell sheet I tied together for the garland.
And I also took some of those torn pieces and tied them on the branches.
Ornaments were made using vintage wall paper and cut out in Angel wing shapes.
Then sprinkled with German glass glitter.
I love how simple this is and yet so elegant.
On my table I added fresh greens to my zinc bucket.
I always have rose’s in my home,always!
My scale is one of my favorite finds while treasure hunting.
Although I did not find it pink,it was an easy transformation with chalk paint.
Nothing needs to be complicated when decorating for the holidays.
Every year we purchase a pre-made and pre-assembled gingerbread how.
It’s always fun decorating and it’s part of our decor.
Artificial greens are wonderful to use too.
But I really enjoy the scent of fresh greens since our trees are artificial.
I am just getting started on my Holiday baking,these are store bought cookies for my photos.
But I am making lots of cookies as I always do this time of the year.
The good thing for me is that by January I am sick of anything sweet,I just wish I could stay that way the whole year through!
I am so glad you stopped by today.
I have so much more to share with you,but I am a part of several tours so I am showing a little at a time.
But I invite you to visit all these other lovely blogs!
